NO! I do NOT want to be so small! I wish I'd keep growing so I can be tall.
This little boy is fed up with being so little. He wants to be as tall as his friends and his big brother. But when he loses his teddy bear up a tree, not even his new tall friend can get it back for him. Maybe with a little bit of help they can reach the bear together .
A fun and inspiring tale about learning to love who we are, no matter what size. A perfect picture book for little people who don't want to be so little! From the brilliant Laura Ellen Anderson - the author/illustrator of the brilliantly fun I Don't Want Curly Hair and the bestselling Amelia Fang series
Reviews from Around the World
I adored Laura Ellen Anderson’s fabulous, ‘I Don’t Want Curly Hair,’ so was thrilled to get my hands on an early copy of her latest picture book which follows similar themes of learning to embrace your uniqueness. As someone who has always been quite challenged in the height department I can empathise strongly with the little boy who is desperate to be taller. He’s so small he misses out when his friends go on the big rides at the funfair and his live is one disappointment after another. In a ginormous rage the little boy throws his teddy into the hair and catastrophe strikes when it gets stuck in a tree. How can he ever hope to get it down? Will eating all his greens make him grow or if he waters himself like a flower? Sadly nothing works. But when he meets a girl who is much taller than him, he soon realises that he is perfect just the way he is! Energetic illustrations combined with lovely lilting rhymes make for a truly irresistible picture book. - Amazon
